Rear ABS rotor orientation

(Zigmund) #1

I am working on 1989 XJ40, VIN 580… Not 100% sure, but this might apply to all XJ40s up to 1994 (someone please confirm).

Would anyone know the correct orientation of the rear-wheel ABS rotor? The rotor is component 11 in the schematic:

and I wonder if the upper side of the rotor (in the photo below) goes towards the wheel, or towards the dif.


It seems to me that the upper side in the photo goes into the inner seal, but the schematic seems to have it towards diff…

Wouldn’t be the first time a drawing has been incorrect :slight_smile: my inclination would be that the boss goes toward the wheel carrier, is it a polished surface that the seal runs on?
